Only rarely does Second Stage take on a musical! A New Brain, by the authors of Falsettos, mixes high drama with wry humor and surreal imaginings. Highly autobiographical, the show stars a musician and lyricist much like William Finn. For drama there’s…well…brain surgery; for surrealism, an imperious frog with an uplifting philosophy of life (he may actually be the guy who’s waiting for a song that’s way over deadline); for seriousness, an artist’s struggle to discover his authentic voice.
